What does the term Spread Rental mean on a lease car?

The term spread rental means the total cost of the lease is spread over the number of payments you choose, with no payment breaks. For example a two years contract with 6 rentals in advance would be spreading your whole cost over 29 rentals, which is 6 in advance, followed by 23 monthly payments.

What does the term Terminal Pause mean on a lease car?

A terminal pause is the opposite to spread rental, whereby the number of initial payments in advance is also the number of payment free months, for example 6 rentals in advance would give you a 6 month break in your contract before you pay another rental, but then the remaining months would be much higher to compensate.  It is very unusual for private individuals or businesses to take a lease using terminal pause terms, however they do work for certain businesses with larger fleets or complex requirements.

Where can my Nissan lease car be serviced?

If you did NOT opt for maintenance with my lease - You can take your vehicle to any VAT registered garage for service or repairs, but you must ensure they use genuine Nissan parts to keep in with the service schedule and manufacturers recommendations.
